So the past few months my tegu has been feeding pretty heavily on thawed small rats, grapes, melon, and to a lesser extent roaches ( hissing and dubia). The primary source of protein has been the small rats. In the months prior to that, the primary source of protein was ground turkey ( mixed with calcium powder) as well as the roaches. What worries me, is that before he wen under, it was AT LEAST a week or two before he pooped. I heard that if that's the case there's a risk of it going septic while hes in hibernation. Does anyone have any experience in this area? Any recommended course of action? As it stands, I have just left him be. I will only dig him up if I absolutely HAVE too.
